The distinguished and ancient German surname Hiedler is of several possible origins. Firstly, it is derived from "hidl," a Bavarian word meaning "stream that dries up temporarily"; in this instance, the name would have been originally borne by someone living close to such a stream. Alternatively, the name is derived from the personal name "Hitt," which is itself derived from the Old High German word "Heldis," meaning "struggle." Finally, the name may be a variant of the surname "Huttler" or "Hutter," both derived from the German word "Hüttler," meaning "carpenter."

Hiedler Early Origins



The surname Hiedler was first found in Munich, where the ancestral home of the Hiedler family is thought to be located. The young Hiedler family figured prominently during this formative period, playing a major role in the early history of the region and contributing greatly to the development of medieval Bavarian society. The family allied itself with other important houses, later emerging itself as one of the prominent families of the region.
